Louis Orr will be returning as coach of the Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team for the 2013-14 season.
An athletics department spokesman confirmed Thursday afternoon BGSU would honor the final year of Orr’s contract.
Orr completed his sixth season as BG’s head coach with a 63-52 loss to Miami Monday night.
When he was hired as the head coach to replace Dan Dakich, Orr was given a five-year contract.
BG was 19-14 in 2008-09, Orr’s second year, and he received a two-year contract extension after that season.
The Falcons finished 13-19 this season and have had only one winning season in Orr’s six years. Overall, BG is 12 games under .500 in Orr’s six years at 89-101.
BG loses four seniors from the 2012-13 team, including leading scorers A’uston Calhoun and Jordon Crawford.
A total of seven scholarship players from this season’s team can return for the 2013-14 season.
In addition Josh Gomez, a 6-foot-10 transfer from Iona, will be eligible to play next season.
Also Zach Denny, a 6-2 guard from Valley View High School in Ohio; Garret Mayleben, a 6-9 forward from Milford (Ohio) High School; and J.D. Tisdale, a 6-5 guard from Swartz High School in Michigan, have signed national letters of intent to begin their collegiate basketball careers at BG for the 2013-14 season.
The Falcons have two scholarships which could be used to sign players for next season.
